If you mean what is the prize awarded for coming first in the Olympic games, this would be the gold medal.

What amount of prize money do Olympic winners get?

Absolutely none. No Olympian has ever won prize money for winning event, even in Ancient Times. This is what I thought, too. However, it turns out that many (if not all) of the individual country's Olympic Committees do award prizes to Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners. For example, the US awards $25,000, $15,000, and $10,000 to the Gold, Silver, and Bronze, respectively. Similarly, Canada awards $20,000, $15,000 and $10,000. As a final example, the Russian Olympic Committee gives $135,000 (yes, that much), $81,600, and $54,400. SOURCE: The Canadian Press Jan 20, 2010.
